Some El Paso politicians are not pleased with a part of the State of the Union message. In the speech on Tuesday, President Trump said even though El Paso was always a very dangerous place, now thanks to a border barrier the city is one of most secure in the nation. El Paso Mayor Dee Margo says he would like to show the President why he doesn't agree when Trump visits on Monday but he hasn't been contacted yet. U.S. Congresswoman from El Paso Verónica Escobar was even more explicit in a letter she sent yesterday to the White House saying President Trump needs to apologize to all El Pasoans for his State of the Union comments.
